Does anyone have any advice on where I might find what I need to rebuild the master brake cylinder for my 1930 8-95? I'm soaking it right now so that I might be able to disassemble it, but anticipate needing to replace the cups. I also do not have the boot that covers the shaft.

Of course, any words of advice regarding the process would be appreciated.

Hi Neal, I hope you intend to resleave the cyl. I don't have that year Auburn but NAPA probably has most of the stuff you need. A whole kit would be best.

Thanks Mike. Another member recommended sending it out and having it professionally done. He recommended Apple Hydraulics. I'm pretty mechanically inclined, but my backround is not cars. I have never done this before, but am not intimidated. Bottom line is, I don't want to compromise my restoration. What would you recommend?

Hi,

I had my master sleeved with stainless at www.brakeplace.com . My brother has had his 37 Chevy cylinders (Those weird "Huck" brakes) done there also. Both jobs came out superbly well done.

Price was reasonable.

With brakes, two cylinders are better than one.

As Tom said, I would use a stainless sleeve instead of brass. There are many places that do this type sleeving. Assembling the master cyl. after you have it sleeved is no big deal. You must keep in mind that some Co. that sleeve master cyl. and wheel cyl. will guarantee them from leaking if they rebuild the cyl. themselves, but not if you assemble the cyl. You probable should think about having the wheel cyl. sleeved also unless you can still get new ones.

Stainless it is. I've got referrals now for a few places. I'll be checking out the wheel cylinders next.

Thanks everybody,
